Environmental Red Light/Green Light Game
To learn some human activities that help and hurt the environment
This game reviews issues that help and harm the environment. Line up the kids in a row next to a wall and stand in front of your students. Say an action that can be either good or bad for the environment. If the kids think it’s a good action, they take a step forward; if they think it’s a bad one, they stay in place. For example, if you say “throw garbage in the street,” nobody is going to take a step forward. If a student moves at the mention of a bad thing, they have to go back one step from where they started. Continue the game until a kid reaches you and wins the game.
